The 23 year old sailor is staging what he calls the Wind Energy Challenge, attempting to create history as the first person to make the journey in a 14 ft Laser Sail boat.
Lewis sets sail from Pigeon Point, Tobago at around 9:30am and will be trailed by a team from the Trinidad & Tobago Coast Guard. He will navigate his way across the waters in hopes of reaching the shores of Maracas Bay at around 3:00pm. The entire distance is estimated to be about 50 miles.
Lewis stated “It has always been a dream of mine to attempt this. When I accomplished my goal of qualifying for the Olympics earlier this year, my management team and I decided that we will give this ‘a go’. I am excited by the challenge, and I hope the public will be also be excited and supportive. Corporate sponsors Atlantic, Bmobile, Oasis Water, Budget Marine and Red Bull are all supporting the expedition while the Sport Company of Trinidad and Tobago and the Tourism Development Company have also stepped up to assist.
Lewis added, “One of my main objectives is to increase the profile of sailing in Trinidad and Tobago. I believe that events such as this one will help in doing so.”http://www.facebook.com/pages/Andrew-Lewis/169566119754576?fref=ts
